    Salient Features

    • Uses the alternative and increasingly popular sign convention for work transfer.
    • Provides a thorough revision for the treatment of perfect gas or combustion, particularly disassociation and several aspects of heat transfer.
    • Discusses combined cycle plant, cogeneration schemes, low temperature power cycles and pollution problems.
    • Written entirely in SI (metric) units.
